Creative Portrait Photography

Paul McConachy

Working with Paul over the years has been a real pleasure; I have had the honour to shoot his three coffee shops across Charlotte and for this Portrait “In-Action” session I captured the best of Paul’s no-nonsense ethics, he does it all; Cook, Barista, Waiter, Shop Keeper and an intimidating bartender suggesting his top wine selection of the day! Paul is a critical part of Darren Bowen Photography and the session was one of the most intriguing I have done in a while.

About My Photography

My photography captures a moment in time - a split-second that remains locked in time often abstracted and completely random. It is in these moments I see potential element, shape, abstraction, and life in colour, inspiration before the moment fades to grey into the past disappearing forever.

My creative portrait photography services provide a beautiful and unique perspective of people with passion and imagination that will have your portfolio catching the eye of family, friends and the world. Take a look around at my work, I promise you'll find yourself in wonder of the possibilities for you.

Baby, Toddler, High School Senior, College Grade, Model, Actor, Engagement, Bridal, Wedding, your Family Photography.

The simple act of smiling can communicate warmth, welcome, and love and pave the way to unique and beautiful experiences and it is for these moments we live. I think the most beautiful portraits are taken in a fun relaxed atmosphere when you forget where you are and that you are even being photographed.

Your portrait session will be fun, unique and completely customized to your vision. We work together on your session from start to end!

“My Wildest Dreams Brought to Life!”

"Darren did such an amazing job with my bridal portraits. He was able to create such magical memories with my photos, that I cannot thank him enough for. He was also such a pleasure to work with, making the environment relaxing and fun! If you are looking for a unique photographer, I hope you use Darren. He will bring your wildest dreams to life in a single photo!"

- Macy Barnhill

“Professional & Brilliant!”

"Darren Bowen went above and beyond our expectations for our daughter’s Senior pictures. Perfect balance of professional and fun and friendly. Took time to really get to know our girl and her personality before choosing the perfect (and not your average, run of the mill) setting for the photos. "

- Regan Haggerty

“Magnify and Amplify Life!”

"Darren is a wonderfully intuitive artist, with an ability to magnify and amplify the life inside his subject. He is a wonderful person who makes it very fun and enjoyable to share his creative space and his company. I highly recommend Darren for any kind of photo shoot."

- Lachlan Wills

"An Eye for Unique Angles!"

"It was amazing to say the least. Darren was so patient and kind. It was a 90 degree day but he never complained! Darren has an eye for unique angles and knows every “cool spot” around the Charlotte area and beyond. He captured my daughter Maddie to a T! I will recommend him to anyone! "
